# Sum of columns of a 2-D Matrix where first element is odd

Given a matrix mat[][], the task is to print the sum of the columns where the first element is odd.

Examples:

Input: mat[][] = {
{8, 2, 3, 5},
{9, 8, 7, 6},
{1, 2, 5, 5} }
Output: 31
Only the third and the fourth column start with an odd element.
And, sum = 3 + 7 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 31

Input: mat[][] = {
{10, 80, 20, 12, 40},
{10, 21, 23, 45, 29},
{19, 18, 17, 16, 15},
{10, 11, 12, 13, 14} }
Output: -1

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: Initialize sum = 0 and start traverse the first row, if any element in the first row is odd then add all the elements of that column to the sum. Print the sum in the end.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// CPP implementation of the approach ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to return the sum of those columns  ` `// of a given matrix that start with an odd element ` `int` `sumColumns(``int` `arr[][4], ``int` `r, ``int` `c) ` `{ ` `     `  `    ``// Initialize sum to 0 ` `    ``int` `sum = 0; ` `     `  `    ``// Traverse through all the elements of the first row ` `    ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < c; j++) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// If the element is odd ` `        ``if` `(arr[0][j] % 2 != 0) ` `        ``{ ` `            ``// Add all the elements of that column ` `            ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < r; i++) ` `                ``sum += arr[i][j]; ` `        ``}  ` `             `  `             `  `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Return the sum ` `    ``return` `sum; ` ` `  `} ` `     `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `int` `arr[3][4] = {{8, 2, 3, 5},{9, 8, 7, 6}, {1, 2, 5, 5}}; ` `int` `r = ``sizeof``(arr)/``sizeof``(arr[0]); ` `int` `c = ``sizeof``(arr[0])/``sizeof``(``int``); ` `cout<<(sumColumns(arr, 3, 4)); ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by ` `// Surendra_Gangwar `

## Java

 `// Java implementation of the approach ` `import` `java.io.*; ` ` `  `class` `GFG  ` `{ ` `     `  `// Function to return the sum of those columns  ` `// of a given matrix that start with an odd element ` `static` `int` `sumColumns(``int` `arr[][], ``int` `r, ``int` `c) ` `{ ` `     `  `    ``// Initialize sum to 0 ` `    ``int` `sum = ``0``; ` `     `  `    ``// Traverse through all the  ` `    ``// elements of the first row ` `    ``for` `(``int` `j = ``0``; j < c; j++) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// If the element is odd ` `        ``if` `(arr[``0``][j] % ``2` `!= ``0``) ` `        ``{ ` `            ``// Add all the elements of that column ` `            ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < r; i++) ` `                ``sum += arr[i][j]; ` `        ``}  ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Return the sum ` `    ``return` `sum; ` `} ` `     `  `// Driver code ` `public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args) ` `{ ` `    ``int` `arr[][] = {{``8``, ``2``, ``3``, ``5``},{``9``, ``8``, ``7``, ``6``}, {``1``, ``2``, ``5``, ``5``}}; ` `    ``System.out.println(sumColumns(arr, ``3``, ``4``)); ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by ` `// shs.. `
